GOOD LAK. Looking for a rustic hideaway? Khao Lak in Thailand is an emerging destination that was once a sleepy village. Suitable for honeymooners, the beach is beautiful, quiet, yet pretty inviting for scuba diving enthusiasts.
Even better is the fact that Pullman Khao Lak Katiliya Resort and Villas (99 Moo 1 Tumbol Kuk Kak Amphur Takua Pa, Khao Lak, Phang Nga, Thailand; +66 76 427 500; pullmanhotels.com) has finally opened. Only an hour’s drive away from Phuket International Airport, the beachfront resort provides 223 rooms and suites and 97 lavish villas. There are also six in-house restaurants, catering to whatever delicacies one might crave for.
